THE Best Service Award Packaging in the Industry

CSI STARS Keepsake Boxes

Recognition is about the person, not the packaging. We know. We agree. It’s about showing appreciation for an individual’s contributions, acknowledging their strengths and providing something personally meaningful to symbolize your gratitude.

By recognizing and rewarding a person for their hard-work and loyalty you’re enhancing that emotional idiosyncratic connection they feel toward their accomplishment. Employees who feel this connection are less likely to leave, exhibit higher morale and improved productivity…all factors that help your bottom line.

Having said that, your presentation sounds sweeter and the gift more valuable when presented in elegant personalized packaging. A well-thought out speech and presentation package shows you’ve taken the time and truly care about the recipient.

Celebration Keepsake Boxes

Personalized keepsake box

CSI STARS modern, personalized keepsake boxes show your attention to detail, are incredibly versatile, not to mention the best quality in the industry.

It’s never just a box

We believe packaging should reflect the value you place on your employees AND be useful.

Inside a personalized keepsake box

Here are a few ideas to put your keepsake box to work while serving as a daily reminder of your accomplishments.

5 Uses for your Keepsake Box

Treasure Box of Family Memories
1. A Treasure Box of Family Memories

Memories are captured daily on our smartphones and shared on social media but there is something special and personal about having physical pictures to pick up, show and share. Pictures prompt us to reminisce, illustrate how fast the kids have grown and how little we’ve aged!

Store pictures in an elegant Celebration Lite or Deluxe box – boxes that look at home on a coffee table or decorate in an open shelving display.

2. Store your Stuff

A keepsake box is a great place to store those chunky bracelets, light scarves, buttons, pins, bowties…you name it. We all have a myriad of little things on our dresser that get lost if not tucked away somewhere safe.

CSI STARS keepsake boxes look beautiful displayed and are also small enough to fit in a drawer.

3. ReGift It

While the intention of your award packaging is to serve as a reminder of your accomplishments, it’s a great looking box so we understand if you want to impress others with a gift presented in this box.

Here are a few gift box ideas for a special friend or family member:

  • Present shared photos, concert tickets and other mementos of fun times together
  • For those gift guessers, package a small gift in this larger box for a big surprise
  • Place a picture of a loved one or friend in the display window of our Deluxe box for a personalized touch and “up” the WOW factor
4. Honor Heirloom Pieces

For those with silverware that sees the light of day over holidays, maybe twice a year, polish your silver utensils and store in this multi-purpose keepsake box where it will be kept safe and clean until the next big family event.

5. Create a Birthday Box

Keep the tradition of these Celebration boxes alive by repurposing your keepsake box as a birthday box chock full of candles, ribbon, napkins, balloons and other little items needed for birthday decorations and cake adornments.

The ideas are as unlimited as your creativity! CSI STARS offers four personalized Service Anniversary presentation packaging options which include a personalized:

  • letter from your President
  • certificate with your employee’s name and years of service
  • ordering brochure of tax-compliant awards
  • optional Lucite or on-the-spot gift
